View Full Version : [ubuntu] help - cannot connect to instance

July 12th, 2011, 05:29 AM
Hi Everyone,

I installed 11.04 on three virtual machines (inside VMware Workstation):
- server01: clc, ws3; public net, private net
- server02: cc, sc; public net, private net
- server03: nc; private net

I was following the guide "Eucalyptus Beginner's Guide", I installed all 3 servers with success, and opened admin web interface, downloaded images, and credentials.

When I connect to the cloud via Hybridfox, I can see the instances, and I can launch them (though some are just pending - forever, but once in a while I get an instance running.

Next problem is that I cannot connect to the running instance via Hybridfox (putty just times out), and I cannot ping the public DNS IP listed for the instance.

If I try to lounch an instance from a terminal, i.e.:
euca-run-instances DCC21051 -a WKy3rMzOWPouVOxK1p3Ar1C2uRBwa2FBXnCw -s hirJ3LM3ravNxML1veyXLFqcG29H5C3l6ng -U
... I don't get response, though I can see in Hybridfox that the instance is pending, and then it terminates.

What do I do wrong, and where do I start troubleshooting?

Thanks in advance!
